The CutBank Annual Chapbook Contest is now open!

The CutBank Annual Chapbook Contest is open as of today through April 30. The Chapbook Contest honors a book of original poetry, fiction or creative nonfiction by a single author. The winning author receives a $1000 honorarium plus 25 copies of the published book. Two runners-up will be chosen for publication as well. 

We’re seeking startling, compelling, and beautiful original work. We’re interested in both prose and poetry – and particularly work that straddles the lines between genres, in a fresh, powerful manuscript. Perhaps yours will overtake us quietly, gracefully defy genres, or satisfyingly subvert our expectations. Maybe it will punch us in the mouth page in and page out.
